|Steven Sotloff (in beard) in Traditional Yemeni Muslim Dress (second from right)|
I was debating if I should report this at this time, while the family is still in Shivah!
But then I thought that it's best to report the truth, so that other "bleeding heart liberals," don't make the mistake of thinking that if only we gave the Muslims back some land, all Arab terrorism would go away.
If only Israel would stop building settlements in their own country, Arab and Jew would live in harmony!
If only we understood the Arab mind, that all they want is peace, then all would be great!
(Now this should be a lesson to Satmar and the crazed Litvisher Yeshivisha way of thinking, as well ....)
Listen fools, I got news for all you " liberal Obama supporting Jews,"
Steven Sotloff disliked the State of Israel and loved the Arab Brotherhood Terrorists, and got his head handed to him anyway!
In an article [undated, roughly 2013] Steven Sotloff, for the Word Affairs Journal, refused to listen to reason that the Muslim Brotherhood, described by the CIA as the mother ship of all terrorist organizations, was a cruel and extreme terror organization.
Instead Sotloff argued that this barbaric terrorist organization that murdered any opposition, raped women for refusing to be fully covered, and commit mass executions, had “valid grievances”.
He proved in his own article that he was simply ignorant, a stubborn islamofacist and unwilling to listen to any reasoning and basically asked for what was coming his way as we now know it:
“…When I told my Egyptian friend Ahmad Kamal that I wanted to go to the Muslim Brotherhood protest camp in Nasser City, a pallid look gripped him. “Don’t go there!” he pleaded. “They are fanatics who hate foreigners. Americans like you are in danger there.”
After an hour of fruitless conversation over endless glasses of sweet tea, I rose, shook Ahmad’s hand, and headed straight to the lair where he believed I would be devoured. “
“But when I arrived at Nasser City, the picture Ahmad painted of long-bearded, club-wielding extremists bent on roughing up secular Egyptians was just as devoid of truth so much else in this divided country.
Coups depicted as revolutions, peaceful protesters painted as fanatics, and disgruntled citizens hailed as revolutionaries have transformed Egypt into a circus where the main attraction is the uncertainty of heading into the unknown. …”
“His avowals were not enough to assuage my friend Ahmad’s fears that the Brotherhood was a violent organization bent on reestablishing itself through force. “They are lying to you. Look at the weapons the police captured at their headquarters,” he said referring to the arsenal of small arms and birdshot the security services seized there.”
“… Ahmad refuses to countenance that the Brotherhood and its supporters have legitimate grievances. Such stubbornness is blocking the path to reconciliation Egypt desperately needs to extricate itself from its security and economic woes. And until Egyptians like Ahmad extend an olive branch to those in Nasser City, Egypt will continue to be mired in a zone of uncertainty"

He believed in democracy,” she said. “He believed that Arabs and Muslims deserved the same opportunities we have in the West.”
